Validation can be defined as, affirmation that a person or their feelings are valid or worthwhile – taken from our daily trusted source, yep you […]

SPRAY-ON trousers are one of spring’s hottest – and sweatiest – trends. High-shine, skintight styles have been seen on celebrities including Kate Beckinsale, Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian. Kim Kardashian in vinyl pants leaves Travis Scott’s birthday party with Kanye West in tow Kate Beckinsale changes into a pair of black PVC trousers and heels after a workout in LA In fact, fashion has developed a serious fetish for the dominatrix look. For those planning to get glam, we tried out some high street efforts. Model Tinna Bergs, 34, tells us how she got on and gives each pair a talc rating out of ten – with one being squeak-free and ten needing tons of powder.
